Yeah, not pretty. I then pulled out each item and laid them out all over the counter. It just emphasizes the ridiculous amount of items that were just stuffed into the drawer.
All items found in the drawer were relocated to our kitchen storage in the basement, or elsewhere in the house. I mean honestly, I don’t use most of those items on a daily basis. For fun, here is a list of what was found.
- cheese slicer from Norway
- pie server
- salad servers
- apple slicer
- sippy cup instruction sheet
- plastic bag with Tums
- another cheese slicer
- meat thermometer
- a Christmas notepad
- extra filters for the breastpump
- coupon for string cheese
- pizza slicer
- basting brush (no idea what the technical term is)
whisks paddles(seriously the name escapes me)
See what I mean? Now, things have changed a bit since this photo was taken because I think everything in your home should be flexible and ready for changes as they are needed. The bowls still reside in the drawer, as do the bibs, but I needed to make room for a couple more things that are needed most often. I combined the bibs and added in washcloths (seriously this girl loves to make a mess) and spoons. I originally had both items in separate locations but quickly realized that I needed them right at my fingertips instead of having to walk to multiple places in order to get the things I needed. Yes, even saving three steps is worth it…honestly, I will do anything for a spare second in my day.
So, there you have it. A quick organization project that may not be the most life changing thing you have ever seen, but it does the trick.
Yes, I do believe this post is a bit trivial considering all the lives that have been lost in Missouri and the homes that have been destroyed. Definitely praying for everyone over there. Natural disasters are so devastating and it makes me so sad to see so much hurt. I am going to be certain to hold Eden a bit tighter tonight and be thankful for what I do have. Praying for you all!
